Leftover Turkey Hash

Day 24 – I couldn’t bring myself to post yesterday. I just wanted to do nothing for the entire day. I know it is a bit of depression but I just needed a day to feel bad about everything and wallow in it. I am much better today. I think I was mourning all that I couldn’t do and really missed. Friends came by over the weekend and we talked through the window. It was nice to talk to someone other than my family.  But, I missed going out and seeing people. Going shopping for “fun.” Eating out in a restaurant (which we rarely did before but now that I cannot I want to do it more!). Even all the running around to the lessons and classes I am missing. My car goes out about once a week now and only for a few miles. I know we are doing good things for the environment, the health of the people around us, and even our lives but I still miss some things.

What is the number one thing you miss?

We cooked a turkey last week and I had some turkey leftover, after sandwiches, and the carcass. I decided to make an easy turkey hash with the dinner leftovers and serve it over garlic smashed potatoes (our family favorite).


This was so good! It looks like dog food but it was delicious. The kids all asked for it again next time we make a turkey dinner. I had plenty of leftover stuffing and turkey but you can make extra stuffing if you desire. The potatoes are super simple to make too.

Serve this with a green vegetable and side salad to complete your meal.

Leftover Turkey Hash

  • Servings: 4-6
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 onion , diced
  • 2 large cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 large red pepper , diced
  • 5 cups cooked turkey , chopped
  • 2 cup stuffing, leftovers are best
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/3 cups gravy (you can substitute heavy whipping cream if you do not have gravy)
  • Serve over Garlic Smashed potatoes, if desired


  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, garlic and red pepper to the skillet and sauté, stirring constantly until the onions begin to become translucent.
  2. Add the turkey, dressing, salt and pepper; stir to mix well. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through; about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the gravy/cream to the skillet. Cook until the liquid is absorbed, stirring frequently, scrapping the bottom of the skillet to incorporate the browned bits into the mixture. Allow mixture to sit a few minutes in between stirring to develop a light golden crust.
  4. Hash should still be moist when done; about 5-10 minutes.

    Great combo with mashed potatoes. Btw. I made your orange cake with orange glaze again… and again, a winner!

  2. I miss going to Cold Stone Creamery and getting my concoction, which I call Pothole Filler. It’s a combination of Birthday Cake Remix and Chocolate Devotion. Mmm!

      1. It is and I take too many trips over there and they’re not even that close to where I live.

    This is a recipe mother would traditionally gather as a dish when cooking a turkey. Thanks.
